Who we are

3D History for Ukraine is a measure to take care of Ukrainian heritage in response to cruel and unjust aggression caused by the invasion of russian army.

It is clear from the military actions in Ukraine that putin and his supporters aimed not to reach historical justice (distorted by their deluded views per se) but to erase Ukraine and Ukrainians from the European map. Our schools, museums and heritage sites are the points of interest for russian artillery and missiles.

These objects that embody our cultural and historical memories are of crucial importance: they should be visible, known and preserved both for Ukrainians and those who sympathize with us in our struggle all around the world.

Our event is a 2 sessions of 6 hours long stream on the archaeology and history of Ukraine and the whole Europe, new discoveries and challenges, features of their study and protection. It is a consolidated effort of historians all around the world to show more of the past, present and future of Ukraine and reflect on different topics of history that appeared to be one of the most practical sciences in the 21st century.

Our plan is to gather funding (up to 30.000 GBP) to purchase a handheld laser scanner for a fast and effective digitization of endangered cultural heritage in Ukraine. Right now this will help to preserve our unique artifacts. In a long run, they will become visible to the scholars and audience worldwide. We will create a transdisciplinary team that will take care of the fast digitization of Ukrainian heritage to safeguard it in virtual world, while the real one is under the constant shelling.

With this meeting where our unbelievable speakers share their passion for history we are trying to provide the qualitative shift in Ukrainian cultural and archaeological heritage recording. This will result in new equipment, applied to digitize and record Ukrainian heritage to prevent its irreversible loss and to help present the world more of the uniqueness and beauty of Ukrainian culture. We call on everyone to join us in enjoying the history we are providing, and to impact the preservation of Ukrainian heritage devastated by this senseless war.

Our initiative gathers the rock stars of historical, archaeological and political sciences from the whole Europe, such as: 

 

​Mykhailo Minakov — Political philosopher, senior advisor at the Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute

Mykhailo Videiko — Archaeologist, a world-acknowledged expert in Trypillian culture and Ukrainian Eneolithic

Marko Robert Stech — Writer, literary scholar, and specialist in the history of Ukrainian culture. Director of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies Press, University of Toronto
